Pieced Together, A Documentary

Pieced Together, A Film by Julianne DonofrioPieced Together has been a labor of love for Julianne Donofrio. She was told that documentaries often take ten years to make so she feels good coming in under the wire. She started filming in 2010 and premiered at the second Quilt Trail Gathering held in Greeneville, TN in 2016. The film has been in seven festivals and won two awards. She is now screening the film in front of groups across the country.

The website for the film is www.piecedtogetherdoc.com. The website has a form people can fill out if they are interested in hosting a screening, and there is also a Google map that shows over 330 trails across the US and Canada, mostly organized by county. This is free for anyone to use and update. It can even be embedded on their own website.

Julianne Donofrio – Award-Winning Documentary Producer

Pieced Together - A Film by Julianne DonofrioDo you remember your first time? You were driving along and suddenly, you passed a barn with a giant painted Quilt Block! When did this start happening? What is a Quilt Trail? How many are there? Is this an organized thing? Who made the first one? And why? These may be questions you’ve asked yourself in the last couple of years, as the phenomenon of Quilt Blocks on Barns has been spreading across the country . . . .

But, whereas most of us are content to ask each other these questions, Julianne Donofrio decided to dig a little deeper. The award-winning documentary producer spent six years making Pieced Together, a documentary about Donna Sue Groves from Adams County, Ohio. And it should be no surprise that the phenomenon of Quilt Blocks on barns began, like every good thing in the history of the world, as one woman’s idea . . . in this case, Donna Sue Groves.

Meeting Julianne Donofrio for the first time was like getting together with a cousin you didn’t know you had. She brings her own comfort level into the room, and into every conversation. You feel connected, but she is more interested in hearing YOUR story than in sharing her own. However, we were determined to find out how a person becomes an Award-Winning Documentary Producer . . . .
